I got this cure from my mother

Get two bulbs of garlic and chop them up small and boil them with a small quantity of water. Make sure no dirt enters the mixture while cooking. when the mixture is brown remove it from the saucepan and place it in a clean bowl to cool a little. Give it to the patient and allow him to drink it as hot as possible. The patient is cured after take this mixture once. I was cured myself with this.
